Cook County Speeding Ticket Attorney

Speeding Ticket Attorney in Cook County, GA

Georgia is considered one of the worst states in which to receive a speeding ticket, according to drivers who travel frequently across the country. The state of Georgia is known for multiple speed traps along many of the major freeways, and on less traveled highways and roads in many counties as well. All speeding tickets in Georgia are considered a criminal misdemeanor by state law. Each county and city sets the fine payment for a speeding ticket, or other moving traffic violation, within that area. Fine payments vary and range in price from $50, to over $1000, depending upon how much over the limit you were speeding.

There is also a law in Georgia called the Super Speeder Law. The law says you will be assessed $200 more in addition to the regular fine for the ticket if you are caught speeding 75+ mph on a 2 lane highway, or 85+ on a 4 lane highway. If you just pay a super speeder ticket and it reports to the Georgia Department of Driver Services, you must pay that $200 fine within 120 days or you of a license suspension.

Our Speeding Ticket Lawyers can fight to save your driver’s license from suspension if you are a driver under 21 years of age, as any speeding ticket or other moving traffic violation that is 4 points or more may cause, or contribute, to license suspension. If a driver under 21 is ticketed for speeding 24 mph over the limit or higher, it can be an automatic license suspension in many courts. Hiring a traffic defense lawyer in Cook County also helps to prevent what could be a traumatic experience for an under 21-year-old driver.

The violation for speeding is known as Georgia traffic code 40-6-181, the points assigned for speeding violations are below.

  • 10 to 14 mph over the speed limit – 0 points, but may report back to your home state if you reside outside of Georgia
  • 15 – 18 mph over the speed limit – 2 points
  • 19 – 23 mph over the speed limit – 3 points
  • 24 – 33 mph over the speed limit – 4 points
  • 34 + mph over the speed limit – 6 points

If you are caught speeding in a construction zone, the fine payments can be higher and in some areas in Georgia the fine may be twice the price of a speeding ticket in a regular, non-construction zone. The points for speeding tickets received in a construction zone will be the same as those above.

Paying a speeding ticket means you are pleading guilty. This can have devastating effects in the future including higher insurance rates and the possibility of losing your license if enough points accumulate against your driver license.
